Chairman's Message

Max Healthcare (MHC) is an institution dedicated ‘To serve, To Excel’ through its commitment to provide world class health care to the community we serve. Our endeavors are aimed to achieve the highest standards of clinical excellence, patient care, medical research and clinical trials and medical education. 

As you are all aware, the advent of SARS COV-2 last year has posed unprecedented and immeasurable medical and clinical challenges to the healthcare community. As a frontrunner medical institution, we pledged to fight this pandemic on multiple levels. Whilst our clinical and paramedical staff have shown incomparable diligence and dedication in serving the healthcare consumers; our scientists and researchers have achieved pioneering leads in collecting, analyzing, publishing and disseminating evidence based cutting edge clinical understanding of this evolving disease. 
MHC not only conducted the first global study on use of HCQ in Covid but also pioneered to lead the clinical trial in use of plasma therapy in India. In the last 12 months, MHC researchers have collaborated on over 80 clinical studies on SARS COV 2 including the high profiled IGIB sero-epidemiological study. 

MHC’s robust academic environment encourages and supports researchers. I applaud the efficient partnerships forged with accomplished national and global institutions like with the Imperial College of London, ICMR, DBT, NIHR, DST and INSA to name a few which have been crucial to the success of our research initiatives. The Bio Bank at the MHC that preserves over 14,000 bio samples maintained under strict cryogenic conditions to enable ongoing and future genetic and epigenetic studies is a testimony of the commitment of our researchers. Our eminent researchers have submitted and published over 400 papers with high impact medical journals in the last year alone across all major specialties. 

I assure our clinicians engaged in research and trials of our continued and unwavering support to create and walk hand in hand on this pathway for achieving clinical excellence
